What led me to the idea of making money online?
When I was 16, curiosity took the best of me and I signed up for many survey websites. I spent hours and hours participating in those. The result : Nothing.

For most people, this would be the perfect choice to make a living online. As long as you have a talent in a certain field, you can easily leverage that for money. Freelancing is one of the most genuine way to earn money online. All you need to do is register with a freelancing website and working for others. There’s just a small catch, you’ll have to pay a small 10-15% commission to the freelancing website as they are the middlemen in your and your client’s transactions.

There are thousands of products online that provide you a small affiliate commission if you refer customers to them. Just make sure to only refer products that you have used and genuinely recommend.

I personally don’t like to take the risk but if you’re pretty certain that you can think like people and can keep up with the market, domain flipping would be perfect for you.
The system is pretty simple, you buy a number of domains, usually ones that people would think of buying. Next, you put them up for sale at much higher prices.
You could easily sell the domain at 500x the buying price! Yes, you could make profits that big.
